Data Bureau

Fiji Sun - - Comment -

Nardeo Mishra, Nas­inu

The Min­is­ter for In­dus­try and Trade, Faiyaz Sid­diq Koya, said the truth about the Data Bureau in his press state­ment. I quote: “For more than a decade ordinary Fi­jians have been suf­fer­ing at the hands of the only credit re­port­ing agency in Fiji which is the Data Bureau which has not un­der­taken proper ver­i­fi­ca­tion of the in­for­ma­tion pro­vided to them nor has in place any cred­i­ble sys­tem to cor­rect their in­for­ma­tion.” This was long over­due and I know there are a lot of us in­clud­ing me who have been the vic­tims of Data Bureau.

Ever since they started their op­er­a­tions in Fiji they have just col­lected the in­for­ma­tion but never tried to con­firm it with the peo­ple con­cerned and also the data they have is al­most 20 years old. If I am not wrong our laws do not al­low you to hold any more data af­ter seven years which the Bureau failed to follow. Thank you Min­is­ter Koya, and the Govern­ment for your con­cern for the ordinary Fi­jians.
